This PSSC film utilizes a fascinating set consisting of a rotating table and furniture occupying surprisingly unpredictable spots within the viewing area. The fine cinematography by Abraham Morochnik, and funny narration by University of Toronto professors Donald Ivey and Patterson Hume is a wonderful example of the fun a creative team of filmmakers can have with a subject that other, less imaginative types might find pedestrian.

In memoriam of B. F. Skinner, who died 1990 on August 18th at the age of 86. The greatest contemporary psychologist, he was also living history—one of the giants of our discipline whose early contributions helped shape modern psychology and who continued, decade after decade, to refine and develop his powerful concepts.

Welcome to 6.041/6.431, a subject on the modeling and analysis of random phenomena and processes, including the basics of statistical inference. Nowadays, there is broad consensus that the ability to think probabilistically is a fundamental component of scientific literacy. For example: The concept of statistical significance (to be touched upon at the end of this course) is considered by the Financial Times as one of "The Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Science".

Differential Equations are the language in which the laws of nature are expressed. Understanding properties of solutions of differential equations is fundamental to much of contemporary science and engineering. Ordinary differential equations (ODE's) deal with functions of one variable, which can often be thought of as time. Topics include: Solution of first-order ODE's by analytical, graphical and numerical methods; Linear ODE's, especially second order with constant coefficients; Undetermined...

"Een schitterend ongeluk werd in 1993 uitgezonden door de VPRO en niet veel later ook in de meeste staten van Amerika. Het was een serie waarin zes wetenschappers hun visie gaven op hun werk en de wereld, met als centraal thema: tot waar bent u gekomen in uw begrip over ons denken en doen? Waartoe heeft de wetenschap ons eigenlijk gebracht aan het eind van de 20ste eeuw: kennis of begrip? De volledige serie is in dit digipak verzameld op vier dvd's. Een bijna 15 uur durende expeditie langs...
